Is this 100% positive way to sex chicks though?

RSL, PR, BR, GL, EE hens... more chicks to come.

I have RIR's and never noticed. Next batch of chicks I'll keep better track of. There are pictures on my BYC Page. I did order all pullets. I paid extra. So far I have gotten one Roo.

th  I had NO CLUE!  That is a great thing to know because I will be hatching some soon.  Do New Hampshire Reds work the same way?
